Leaving Our Mark 



Pam Worth 

By June, the class of 1 997 will have spent 1 2,690 hours in school. That's 
777,600 minutes of learning and pretendingto learn, of taking notes and passing 
notes. 777,600 minutes spent studying for tests and realizing that you forgot to 
study for tests, of listening to teachers lecture and falling asleep while the teachers 
lecture. However, you passed all this time, one thing is certain: these 777,600 min- 
utes spent in school can not be recreated. Once we leave BHS, we can come back 
to visit, we can attend all our class reunions, but we will never have experiences 
quite like the ones we had during our school days. 
Hopefully, as we go our separate ways, to college or to work, we will use 
what we learned from classes, experience, and from each other to live. There is 
such diversity in BHS, of personalities, races, ambitions, and talents, that each of 
us, in our own way, have made a mark on the school and on each others' lives. 
These marks, each of them as unique as our fingerprints, will leave a lasting im- 
pression in our memories for years to come.

Junior Prom 



They thought it would never come, but for the Class of 1997, May 20th arrived in a haze of music, 
lights , and nervous anticipation. The junior prom was a culmination of months of hard work put in by 
class members as well as officers, and the results were nothing less than spectacular. The new caferteria 
was transformed into an enchanted garden of purple and white flowers, clinging green vines, and enough 
glitter and confetti to make the whole room sparkle. A few trees and shrubs added to the ambiance, and 
the smiling expectant faces of the junior class were the final touches to the extensive decorating process. 

Though the Class of '97, like all the others in BHS, is composed of many diverse individuals, every- 
one came together in a circle, hands joined, when the theme song was played. As "These Are Days" (10,000 
Maniacs) resounded through the magical garden scene, they looked around the circle, searching for the 
faces of the children they had known, and were both surprised and proud to find instead the radiant faces 
of the adults they had become. In that moment of recognition, the junior class made a memory that will stay 
with them forever.

Fun in the Sun 



Devin McPhie 

This past spring, the Music Department of BHS embarked on an extended field trip, its bi-annual tradition. 
This year's trip was the result of a great deal of effort and planning on the parts of Mr. Low, Mr. Reagan, and 
Mr. Maffa. The trip was a huge success, one that the students of the Music Department will fondly remember 
for a long time to come. All of the major performing groups, including the orchestra, marching band, and concert 
choir prepared for months for perhaps the largest scale music department event ever: a trip to Orlando, Florida 
to participate in the All-American Music Festival, and Walt Disney World's Magic Music Days. 

The sun was ever-present, the weather was warm, and the musicians of Bedford High School performed 
beautifully, truly a credit to our school. In addition to performing, thanks to the efforts of their directors, thd 
students were able to take part in a variety of fun, relaxing activities, including visits to a few of the most famous 
amusement parks in the country, if not the world. Grateful for this wonderful opportunity provided by the musid 
department, the students will take this extraordinary memory with them as they depart the hallowed halls of BHS. 






When mention is made of high school mu- 
sicians, those students that do not participate in 
school sponsored ensembles generally do not 
spring to mind. While those that participate in 
band and orchestra are very often excellent musi- 
cians, there are usually other students in the school 
that also excel in music, albeit in other forms. As 
you may have guessed, such is the situation here 
at BHS. 

Torrey Bassett and his band Frigid, com- 
posed of Stephani Burns and T.J. Calamita, have 
been together for shortly under a year. They play 
numerous gigs, including the Hanscom A.F.B. 
Community center, and the well-known Boston 
restaurant/club, the Middle East. The Middle 
East gig was the most fun for the band, said 
Bassett, who is the lead singer and guitarist for the 
band. Although regular bassist Stephani couldn't 
attend, the show went on with Angie Calamita 
playing bass. 

When not subbing for Frigid, Angie plays 
bass in a band of her own, Kill me Kate. Other 
members include lead singer and guitarist Jamie 
Carpenter, and drummer T.J. Calamita, who also 
plays ipr Frigid. Kill me Kate has played almost 
as many gigs as Frigid, but their scheduled ap- 
pearance at the Middle East unfortunately fell 
through. 

Both bands have high hopes for the future; 
Frigid hopes to pursue a record deal in a few years 
if the band is still together. Kill me Kate is working 
to schedule another Middle East show, and work 
on greater exposure. We wish these outstanding 
musicians the best of luck in their future pursuits.

Pep-Rally 





This year's annual 
Pep Rally proved to be a 
terrific success. With all 
of the school spirit which 
was generated the night 
before at the rally, the 
football team was able to 
defeat Concord at the 
Thanksgiving Day foot- 
ball game. Their victory 
has evened the score of 
wins and losses over the 
past several years.

Pirates of Penzance 



This year the Music Department was very pleased to put 
on a performance of Gilbert and Sullivan's operetta "The 
Pirates of Penzance." The cast and crew of the play 
worked very hard to put on this remarkable production, 
and the level of work paid off. This year was a little 
different because the assistance of the Art Department 
was enlisted for some of the set design and construction. 
The performance was a smashing success, and everyone 
involved should be commended for a job well done. 



The "Pirates" cast included seniors Ingrid Ahlgren, Shawn 
Downs, and Emily Ullman in lead roles. Other notable 
actors included Shaun Fillion, Jon DeArujo, Meredith 
Campbell, and JoAnna Mclnnis. The stage crew was led 
by senior Casey Hill, with Colin McDonough on lights, 
and senior Justin Hastings managing the sound system. 
Mr. Low directed once again, and was assisted by Mr. 
Ferguson.

M.E.T.CO. 



by Devin McPhie 



M.E.T.CO. (Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity) is a non-profit, voluntary organization 
that enables urban students to take advantage of educational opportunites in suburban schools. 

The Bedford M.E.T.CO. program, initiated in September of 1974, is directed by Ms. Michelle Foster. The 
current Bedford M.E.T.CO. coordinator is Mrs. Irene Parker, who has held this postion for the past nineteen 
years. Mrs. Parker has had a strong influence on the lives of many students, and her efforts to integrate Boston 
kids into Bedford Public School systems have been met with a great deal of success. 

The M.E.T.CO. students in the Class of '97 - Aisha and Asha Mondesirjameel Moore, Kianga Eccles, Jon 
Brome, Felisha Bruno, and myself - would like to thank Mrs. Parker for all of her work on our behalf, as well as 
for many good memories of our time spent in the Bedford Public School system. Those juniors, sophomores, 
and freshmen who are staying behind wish the Seniors good luck in all future endeavors!

Targeteers 



For over four years, the Targeteers have 
been dedicated to educating the youth of 
Bedford about the hazards of tobacco. That's 
four years of producing T.V. shows, writing 
scores of letters, and making presentations to 
kids and to adults! It's also four years that 
would not have been possible without the sup- 
port of both Nancy Freed, who left this year to 
work in Lexington, and our advisor, Dennis 
McDonald. Although we lost a reliable helper, 
the Targeteers hope to remain a prominent 
influence in many kids' decisions not to smoke.

SADD 



S.A.D.D. is an organization that 
teaches students about the danger of drink- 
ing and driving. This year, as well as in 
previous years, they successfully promul- 
gated their anti-intoxication message. 
Hopefully, the program will receive 
enough funding to continue for many more 
years, educating the youth of Bedford.

Though the staff of the Forum was very 
small this year, they were still able to produce a

Coming up in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.. "Good Morning, Welcome to BHS Live!" Telemedia is the club which puts on the 
morning show, BHS Live! The show is entirely student-run, students are crew, announcers, directors, and 
producers. Not only does the show present the morning announcments, but there is also a part for clips or 
interviews, interesting events, or people in the school. This year, the student leaders were Shawn Downs, 
Miranda Hillyard, and Rick Stucka. They found this year's new crew members and announcers, arranged 
training, and came up with a majority of the ideas seen on the program. Telemedia really suceeded this year in 
both entertaining and in informing the school, and hopefully next year the group will be just as strong and just 
as fun.

Madrigal 




" Fa la la la, Fa la, la, la " This is a common line that is 

sung by the Madrigal Singers, a select, but totally fun group of 
16 talented young men and women, endlessly searching for 
"the phantom beever." Whether it is the intense Madrigal 
Dinner, the limitless songs, "Mothas," or the terrific Madrigal 
Bond Weekends, Madrigal is always ready to sing with the 
utmost enthusiasm. Madrigal is lead by the fearless Mr. Barry 
Low, who directs the music, and prevents the singers from 
having too much fun! And "So it Goes" down that "Lonesome 
Road" in another endless year of music.

More Music Department 



Double Sextette and Men's Octet are two student-directed 
singing groups. Above and beyond Chorus and Madrigal, the mem- 
bers of these two groups utilize their love of singing to entertain the 

masses. 

Wind Ensemble, Jazz Band, and Concert Band are the three 
bands that exist at BHS in addition to the Marching Band. Members 
of these groups perform along with the orchestral ensembles at 
instrumental concerts. Concert Band is a forum for any students 
who wish to participate in band to perform, while the Wind En- 
semble is a group for more advanced students, to the point that an 
audition is required. Jazz Band is the group that band members find 
the most entertaining to be a part of, as it gives them the chance to 
improvise and experiment with great pieces of music.

The Bedford High School Orchestra is a group of 
incredibly talented young men and women who 
enjoy rehearsing and performing under the direc- 
tion of the incomparable Philip Maffa. The BHSO 
plays at all of the instrumental concerts, and also 
competes in the MICA competition /music festi- 
val every spring, where the musicians have al- 
ways received excellent reviews. Last spring the 
BHSO accompanied the rest of the music depart- 
ment to perform in Florida, both at Disney World, 
and at the All American Music Festival. The 
Chamber Orchestra is comprised of students who 
wish to play above and beyond the call of the 
BHSO. Being a member of the BHSO or the 
Chamber Orchestra is a memorable and reward- 
ing experience for string players at BHS. Under 
the superb direction of Mr. Maffa, the BHSO is 
sure to go far in years to come. -Sarah Toole

Boys' State 

Boy's State is a mock government simulation that is organized and run bv the 
American Legion. High schools across the state send representatives to this 
week long event, and during their stay, the boys are organized into cities or 
towns, and participate in governing those municipalities. In addition to "local 
government," the boys have an opportunity to run for "state" offices, such as 
seats in the House or the Senate. Bedford's two representatives for the spring 
of 1996 were Devin McPhie and Casey Hill. Below: Devin McPhie and Casey 
Hill pose with Lawrence DiCiara. 



Girls' State 

Much like Boys' State, Girls' State is organized by the America 
Legion, and girls from across Massachusetts are able to participate i' 
a similar mock-government situation. Bedford's representatives tl 
Girls' State were Kamah Hittle and Christine O'Reilly. Below, rig}

The Student Atmosphere 
Committee is an organization de- 
voted to stopping the racism, 
homophobia, anti-Semitism, sexism, 
and other general prejudices in BHS. 
The club has existed previously at 
BHS, but has not been present in the 
school for a few years. While the 
club this year is designed to include 
more groups than it originally was, 
the environment - friendly, support- 
ive, and accepting - still remains. 

With the guidance of our 
advisor, Mr. Modzelewski, we hope 
to accomplish a lot in 1996/7, and in 
years to come. Some things that we 
are working on are "Free Your Mind" 
day, which will include different 
speakers coming to BHS, and a 
monthly newsletter. The Student 
Atmosphere Committee- dedicated 
to educating the students of BHS 
about diversity.

Student Mediators 



Mediation is a 
school committee that 
offers a safe alternative 
to fighting. When two or 
more students are hav- 
ing a problem, they can 
resolve their issues eas- 
ily, without a big con- 
flict, by contacting the 
mediators. A meeting is 
organized, and with the 
mediators acting as go- 
betweens, the students 
can resolve problems 
peacefully.

Drama club has always proven to be fun 
for all who join. This year was no exception - 
all of our traditional enterprises, like the 
Tournament of Plays, the New York trip, etc., 
were carried off without a hitch, and all the 
participants had a wonderful time. 

The Tournament of Plays was very 
enjoyable for the audience, actors, and crew. 
This year, the junior class, with their play, "Of 
Widows and Vegetables", won the Best Play. 
Sophomore Jackie Sullivan won the Best 
Actress award, and Shaun Filion's perfor- 
mance in the junior class play won him Best 
Actor. 

The annual New York trip was a lot of 
fun for everyone. The drama club enjoyed the 
Broadway shows "Cats" and "Les Miserables." 

This spring, Bedford once again at- 
tended the State Drama Tournament, 
perfoming with other towns from across the 
state. With many underclassmen in the club, 
Drama is sure to continue to be a success in 
the future.

Science League 



Justin Hastings 

The Bedford High School Science Team had a great season this year, competing in many events relatii;; 
to chemistry, physics, biology, engineering and other fun science subjects. Coached by Mrs. Catherine Kruegi. 
and Mr. Larry Ullmann, the Science Team remained very competitive all year, occasionally even coming out I 
first place, ahead of the approximately fifteen teams of the Western Suburban Science League. Spearheaded 1 
a raucous group of seniors, and a number of enthusiastic underclassmen, the Science Team greeted every me 
and competition with a team spirit and excitement unheard of in any of the other teams in the league, includii ; 
loud boombox music, extra radiation suits from the New York Power Authority, and amazing luck in the fair 
of better-prepared teams. Once we finish the regular season, we will go onto States, where we hope to better or 
eighth-place finish from last year.

Yearbook Staff 



By Devin McPhie, Editor-in-Chief 

After countless hours, headaches, and narrowly avoided ulcers, the Yearbook is finally finished. The 
brave band of adventurers that took up the perilous quest of publishing this book have all survived nearly 
unscathed, and the fruit of their labor is beautiful to behold. 

In all seriousness, the job of recording and publishing a year spent at Bedford High School is 
extremely difficult, and all of those who contributed to the gargantuan effort to produce the Yearbook in 
your hand should be commended. A brief history of the historians: The '97 Yearbook staff was comprised 
of entirely new people. No one involved with this project had any prior exerience to speak of, which made 
the task that much harder. Work began on your yearbook in the summer of '96. Planning meetings were 
held, ideas bandied about, and decisions were made. At the end of the summer when some of you began 
training for sports, we began training for Yearbook. The group started out fairly large, but many members 
gradually decided they had better things to do with their time. As always, the staff ended up being too 
small to efficiently do its job, which resulted in several late nights, Saturday staff meetings, and even 
coming in to work over vacation. Staff members made many sacrifices to be here for you, braving snow 
storms, sleep deprivation, and illness, so if you see one in the hall, don't be shy about saying, "Nice Job." 
They've more than earned a pat on the back. 

As Editor this year, I have had the privilege of meeting and working with a great many students, 
faculty members, and business people. First I would like to acknowledge Mr. John Neister, our Josten's 
Representative, and Ms. Jakki Davis, who handles our book down at the plant in North Carolina. Now, on to the 
staff. First, the Poster Girls: Marianne Roseland, Katie Boyd, and Jen Simpson. Next, the Freshman 
Crew: Carrie Frank, Catherine Hill, Kristen Ela, and Kelly Alexander. Random Visitors: Sarah Toole, Sarah Vanderwai 
Danielle Blanchard, Shawn Downs, Chris Betz, Carey Huxsaw, Beck Venuti, Jen Milligan, Cordelia Primmerman, an 
Miranda Hillyard. 

This next group of staffers were a real privilege to work with, because of their dedication, hard 
work, and aura of cool competence. The High Council of the '97 Yearbook Staff, in no particular order: 
Casey Hill and Justin Hastings, Editors-at-Large. These two originally were not on the staff, but selflessly 
jumped in to help when we needed it the most. Laura Gavornik, Editor of the Underclassman section. 
Laura moved here about a third of the way through the school year and joined the staff. A layout wizard, 
Laura quickly became an invaluable member of the staff. Rachel Johnson, Co-Business Editor. Rachel 
was a true professional, moving into the Business area as a rookie, but quickly becoming extremely 
productive, selling ads, making contacts, working on mailing lists, and basically making money. Kamah 
Hittle, Co-Business Editor. Kamah had some experience, and put her training to use. The two of them 
made a great team. Pamela Worth, Copy Editor. Pam was here every day, writing and editing articles, 
and doing layout as well. Derek Ho, Art Editor. Derek is responsible for a lot of how the book looks, and 
his vision will pay off for next year's book. Dinah Dvinov and Pranitan Kulhom were a duo that came in 
and worked on anything they were given. Great job you guys. Joe Savitch, Photo Editor. Joe was 
responsible for a lot of the pictures in the book, as well as for a great deal of the Senior Section. Josh 
Smith, Freelance Photographer. Josh took some great pictures, 'nuff said. It was these people that made 
me look forward to coming to Yearbook, and I offer them all my heartfelt thanks and warmest regards. 

Finally, I would like to thank Mrs. York, for once again editing the Senior Thanks and Mrs. Rose Sylva for h 
successful fundraising work. I would also like to acknowledge the Administration of BHS, as well as our Faculty Advise 
the incomparable Mike Rinaldi. Mr. Rinaldi has been with the yearbook for five years, and he continues to do a damnt 
fine job. 

I am extremely pleased to have my copy of the Yearbook, especially in light of the immense effort 
and sacrifice it required of me and my staff. I urge anyone to work on Yearbook, whether it's here at BHS 
or in college, because it is a very worthwhile experience. I hope that each of you enjoys your Yearbook, 
and appreciates the work done on it. To my staff, Thank you for all of the memories, and Congratulations 
on a job well done. To the rest, my regards, and Best Wishes for each of your respective futures.

Class of 1 998

Never Enough Free Time 

by Pamela Worth 

My advice to freshmen and 
sophomores, as a harried junior, is 
this: kill yourselves now! Quickly, 
before you find yourselves 
innundated with five hours of 
homework per night, and only 45 
minutes to do it, before you need 
$700 just to buy one prom dress, 
before you. ..well. Explode is a 
good word. 

There are so many more op- 
tions available to juniors, like NHS, 
unassigneds, eating in the new 
cafeteria, and driving. Unfortu- 
nately, all these options leave us 
with little free time, when com- 
bined with homework, labs, and 
projects. 

The Class of '98 will undoubt- 
edly survive this year, as it has all 
the others. This year, however, we 
have a special incentive: gradua- 
tion. One year until we leave BHS 
forever. . .heh-heh.

Wise Fools 



The Classof '99 doesn't have much to 
brag about right now. What's to say? 
They're still sitting in the old cafeteria, still 
taking Driver's Ed., and worst of all, their 
homework level has quadrupled. However, 
the Class of '99 has so far shown enough 
spirit to make it through the most nonde- 
script of all high school years. 

This year, they get a chance to relax a 
little, happy that they have one more year 
before the SAT's need to be taken, before 
colleges and scholarships need to be consid- 
ered. They have enough respect from the 
frosh as one-year BHS veterans, and they 
know where all the classrooms and bath- 
rooms are... good enough. Best wishes to the 
sophomores for the rest of their high school 
career!

Freshman: 
Class of 2000 




Stephanie Abrams Danielle Adams Bethany Aiken 




Jessica Barden Thomas Baudanza Alan Beaulieu 



The Class of 2000 has gone from being 
the big cheeses in JGMS or Hanscom Middle 
School, to being the lowest of the low in 
BHS. The Class of 2000 has recovered admi- 
rably, however, and learned how to adjust to 
life in high school - how not to get lost in the 
halls, what YOG means, how not to annoy 
the Upperclassmen. 

This year's freshmen came into BHS 
with a lot of enthusiasm, instead of the 
standard timidity. They are well-repre- 
sented in clubs and sports throughout the 
school, and manage not to get too upset 
when the traditional cries of 
"Freshmen. ..(etc.)" are heard. We wish the 
Freshmen luck with the rest of this year, and 
the rest of their three years at BHS.

School Staff 



All of the staff at BHS are certainly well- 
apreciated. However, is is necessary to give extra 
praise to one teacher, who has always given his all as 
a teacher.. .and as a coach. Mr. Sabourin, one of 
Bedford High's mathematics department teachers, 
and also one of three football coaches, has won the 
title of Coach of the Year from the Boston Globe. 
Only three coaches are selcted for the title, each the 
head of their division. Mr. Sabourin was picked 
from all the Massachusetts Division Three coaches. 
He was already in The Massachusetts Football 
Coaches' Hall of Fame, having guided the team to 
the DCL, but this award is just as prestigious. Con- 
gratulations to Mr. Sabourin!

Football 



This year's football team performed admirably under seemingly adverse 
conditions. The loss of many players from the class of '96 was supposed to 
significantly affect the team, and a few injuries early in the season did not bode 
well for the Bucs. However, Bedford stepped up to the challenge presented by 
the naysayers and finished up the season with pride. The absolute highlight of 
the season was the Bucs' crushing victory over Concord at the Thanksgiving 
game. GO BEDFORD!!!!

Many people suggested Bedford Field 
Hockey lacked determination, persistence, and 
quality. Soon they would realize, however, this 
was not at all the case on the inside. A strong team 
built on spirit and enjoying the game, each player 
was enthusiastic and carried a great willingness to 
persevere. Through psyche bags, bus parties, 
breakfast and dinner get-togethers, meditation 
sessions and "Wa" sessions, etc., achieving unity 
was a must for the team. This exceptional effort 
was much more important than the final game 
results. 

Led by Head Coach Jane Wood and JV 
Coach Chrissy Palmieri, this year's team displayed 
an immense amount of potential due to many 
experienced players and a huge Freshman turn- 
out. Captains Trinity Dunne and Keri Evjy along 
with Seniors Ann-Michelle Levangie, Kim 
MacGregor, Elisa McGovern, Candice Tanner, and 
Kristen Sylva played their hearts out each and 
every game. To the Bedford Field Hockey of 1997: 
Good Luck, Chase that rainbow, and CRUSH 
WAYLAND!

Varsity Soccer faced a difficult season in the fall, 
but rose to the challange. Led by captains Dave 
Wolf and Mark Kruger, the Bucs pulled together 
to to have a good season. Although injuries 
plagued the team throughout the year, the team 
finished the season with pride. Seniors Rick 
Stucka, John McGrath, Casey Hill, Will Steiglitz, 
and Dave Wolf all had strong seasons, with lots 
of support from underclassmen. With a wealth of 
talent on the team and an explosion of players 
coming up from the middle school, soccer is on 
the rise in Bedford. Look for the Bucs to be a force 
in the DCL in the years to come.

F&F! That was this year's Varsity Girls Soccer motto. 
Through hard work, dedication and team unity the girls 
had one of the best teams that Bedford has seen in years. A 
highlight to their season was beating Concord-Carlisle 
twice, which had not been done in the past fifteen years. 
Captains Jen Robb and Chris O'Reilly kept the team to- 
gether creating incredible team unity in the girl's soccer 
program. The unity was kept strong through team din- 
ners, a car wash, and other events. As a result of the girls' 
bonding and their determination, returning coach,Kristen 
Maskelenko, led Bedford to a 2-2-2 start, the best starting 
record in years. This could not have been done without the 
incredible defense provided by seniors: Katie Akillian and 
Kristen LaFebvre, and Juniors: Stephanie Potter, Joanna 
Thoren, and Emily Gleason. Junior Elena Vaskalakis pro- 
vided both offense and defense for the Bucs. Seniors 
Melissa Fagan and Consuelo Vargas, as well as Juniors 
Laura Olsen, Susan Mara, Joanna McGinnis, Erin Slavin, 
Kacie Kennedy, Rashmi Kaul, and freshman Jessie McGrath 
provided a threatening offense. Dual County League All- 
Star goalie Jen Robb was a major contributing factor to the 
successful season. Her diving saves and spectacular punts 
set the mood in many games. This years Varsity Girl's 
Soccer set many standards that will hopefully be kept up in 
years to come.

The 1996 golf team was led by coach Reynolds, Ms, Laver and 
Captain Tom Shepard. The Bucs had a great year finishing the 
season at 7-6-1, the first winning season in several years. The 
:eam made it to the state tournament where it missed qualifying by 
Dnly four strokes. Sean Pruitt led the way with a 78. Sean's score 
aarned him second place on the state and a spot in the individual 
state finals! Tom Shepard represented the Bucs in the DCL All-star 
:ournament. The members of this year's team were Tom Shepard, 
<eith Baird, Sean Pruitt, Ned Chaney, Joe Sylva, Larry Brutti, Dave

competent. Under the leadership of

Rifle Team 




Rifle team is slowly emerging from the 
shadows of obscurity... a few years ago, not too 
many people besides those on the team knew 
about it! Now, thanks to the guidance of Coach 
Goodwin, and the expert marksmanship of 
Captain Mike Goodwin (as well as the rest of 
the team), the rifle team is doing well, and 
winning most of its competitions. 

With so many newcomers, one would 
think that the team would be weakened by 
inexperience. However, they won their very 
first match, against Rogers High, 809 to 773. 
Hopefully, the rifle team will continue to flour- 
ish, and pull itself out of the shadows.

Coming off of a great 15-6 season, the 
Bucs just wanted to get a berth in the State 
Tournament. The Bucs surprised everyone with 
a spectacular 21-2 season. The team went on to 
win the Dual County League Championship for 
the second straight year, but suffered a great 
loss to Newburvport in the Division 3 North 
Semi-finals. 

The season showed that vou can work 
hard and have plenty of fun while winning. The 
highlights of the season were great games against 
Newburvport, Lincoln Sudbury, Concord- 
Carlisle, and Acton-Boxborough. We also went 
to Cooperstown for two days to play Concord- 
Carlisle, and defeated them 4-0. 

Next year's team will miss the strong 
leadership provided by last year's seniors: Chris 
and Jesse Ryan, Andy Katz, Tim Sheflin, David 
Storer and Dan Maclsaac. The '97 season looks 
promising, however, with a number of return- 
ing players like Brian Waldran, Mike Sullivan, 
Curt Warrington, Matt Abt, Mike Reid, Steve 
Lua, and Gary Martin.

started now. 




Head! Heart! Hustle! 

The 1996-97 Bedford High lacrosse team had all 
three of these components. Our knowledgeable 
coach, Jeff Snow, put the "head" on our shoul- 
ders. We had the love of the game - some play- 
ers chose to continue the season in summer 
leagues. And the hustle, even if it meant practic- 
ing in a parking lot because there was still snow 
on the fields. 

This year's team was a well-rounded one. 
Although we lost many of our key starters, we 
also had a promising pack of experienced players 
left over. The team was led by senior captains Jay 
Randazzo and Aaron Feiring, and junior captain 
Nick Sabella. Many other returning lettermen 
helped the team succeed. 

The Bucs lacrosse team has always had an 
optimistic outlook every season. Our next season 
promises to be at least as good as in the past.

Able to run at the 
speed of light, hurl 
heavy objects great 
distances, leap build- 
ings in a single bound 
- is it Superman? No, 
it's the Bedford High 
School track team. As 
in past years, the 1 996 
season was a fast- 
paced whirlwind of 
practives and meets. 
Considering the 
Bedford squad is one 
of the smallest teams 
in the league, they 
faired considerably 
well in 
competitions. That 
was mostly due to the 
amazing prowess of 
seniors through 
some of its rougher 
times. Chrissy, ran 
the 1 00 meter hurdles 
with incredible 
speed, virtually de- 
stroying her compe- 
tition. She was also a 
tough contender in 
the long jump and 
triple jump events. 
Jay, an amazing 
sprinter, ran the 
100m event as well 
as the 200m event. In 
addition, he was also 
quite a jumper. Like 
Chrissy, he usually 
had the upper hand 
over the other teams. 
Without these two 
team members, the 
1 997 track season will 
not be the same for 
Bedford High 
School, but surely 
new stars will 
emerge.

Boys Tennis 



Both our doubles teams received honorable mentions for 
their record. Josh Smith and Vilas Sridharan had on 
outstanding season, and upset some of the best teams in the 
league. Second doubles, Mike Hursh and Jeremy Ciaccia 
also had an incredible season. Our JV players; Kris Sarajian, 
Sanju Shwakramani, Tim Pantano, Will Stieglitz, Tom 
Shepard, and Erik Luke did an incredible job, and showed a 
great deal of team spirit. Coach Arlene Deordorff had her 
final year, and earned the sportsmanship award for yet 
another year. Altogether the year was one of the best the 
tennis team has had in years. This year we hope to do as well, 
if not better, than last year. Last year's tennis team had one 
of its best seasons in years. Our number one player, Sam 
Richards, had a tough season but played with incredible 
enthusiasm. Dave Wolf, our second singles player did very 
well considering the fact that a great deal of his opponents 
are nationally ranked. Freshman Ryan Friend had an incred- 
ible starting year in third singles ! He showed great patience 
and skill.

Ingnd-my most unique friend. No, my parents didn't let me 
have my party at a hotel! Jen Robb, you are the best to 
discuss the latest on GH with! Jean, thanks for all the chats 
during unassigned. Elisa: for calling me Ameets by acci- 
dent, then making it a permanent name! Thanks to every- 
one - Chris, Roslyn, Mary, Dax, and Dr. K - at the office for 
being coolest people to work with. Thank you Shishubharati 
for everything, for giving me so much more knowledge 
about my Indian culture and for giving me the opportunity 
to give some of that knowledge back to other children. It was 
a wonderful 6 years. Thank you to anyone else that I may 
not have mentioned. You are not forgotten in my heart. 
Future Goals: To go to college, major in business or medi- 
cine, get a great career, travel around the world, get married, 
travel around the world again, stay close to my family, and 
live a long, healthy, happy life. 



First of all, thanks to my family - Mom, Dad - for your

hard, trusting me and giving me the freedom to become an 
independent individual, teaching me that sometimes laugh-

Cristina Ciccone 

There are so many people I want to thank for their love, 
patience, laughter, and for contributing to the wonderful 
memories that make up my life. Mom, thank you for always 
telling me what I needed to hear. Your just as crazy as me, I 
wonder where I get it from. Dad, thank you for telling me 
what I sometimes didn't want to hear. You've kept me 
working hard to improve mvself. Terri thanx for being a 
great older brother. I love you. Nadya, Shneugh, we've 
known each other since we were two. Although throughout 
the years we've gone our separate paths we've somehow 
always found our way back to each other. Leana, for under- 
standing me so well. Nicci and Meghan we've had some 
crazy, freaky and wonderful times the three of us hanging 
with '95,'96, and of course'97. Also crazy roadtrips,old 
orchard beach, and some wild shneugh sessions. We are the 
original partyers of '97. Nicci, thanx for access to the trunkage, 



■ 



roof surfing and for being able to pull strings (though 
nobody knows exactly how). Also for listening to me when- 
ever I needed to talk. Nicci take me downtown... Meghan 
thanx for your crazy singing skills, spockey the happy 
monster,and somehow always knowing how to make me 
smile no matter what, oh yeah and those delectable little 
chewys. I love you both. Many of my fondest memories 
have been with you two, and babv, we ain't done yet. Thanx 
for the crazy lovin and for being my best friends I love you 
two. Chester and Chris, you guys are my boys. We've have 
so many memories the three of us like our frolicking expe- 
ditions, random cruising, the res, and our summer jour- 
neys. You two are like the little devil sitting on my shoulder 
and that's why I love ya! Chris thanx for always being in 
control when Chester and I are giggling little fools, and for 
taking me to strange places and meeting strange people, I 
love it. Thanx for being such a sweetie and for putting up 
with me sometimes. We've known each other for so long 
before as friends now as more. Never forget that I love you. 
Chesta! your a sweetheart. Thanx for cat on my head, our 
out of control frolicking, brain massages, woonsocket, 
crawdads, and gum. "That Chester is a bad mother, I'm 
talking about Mike Chester." Also thanx for knowing as 
much useless information as me, (if not more). OOH 
OOH. ..OOH OOH. Kim, what can I say your a wicked bad 
bomb. I've only known you for a short time but I consider 
you one of my closest friends. Thanx for hanging with Chris, 
Chester and I, for stealing my brain when I need it most, for 
being as big a freak as me, and playing my silly little games. 
In the words of Pietchel you two get a little silly when your 
together. It's a wonder we haven't killed each other yet. 
Melissa, thanx for being crazy. Never forget our crazy 
Walden trips (pink speedo, and rescuing Brad), the deadly 
combination of devil dogs and hot dogs, all our memories 
from soccer. You are without a doubt the best person to have 
in a public place. Conseulo, thanx for doing the worm,crazy 
memories from soccer and for the camp-out with Melissa 
and Angela. Shway you are a rock! Angela thanx for the 
sponge bath, and your crazy fashion sense. I have never 
seen anyone look quit as good as you in police pants. Both 
of you never forget when I made that girl ( the one who told 
me to step up) bolt out of the locker-room. Jenn you are the 
only person who enjoys the school's fake meat as much as 
me, and the lunch ladies cause thev know we like them extra 
sloppy. Nina thanx for always laughing at my jokes, and for 
just being Nina Carlo (the name says it all). Becky thanx for 
being so crazy, and sticking with your Harry story even 
though we know it's a lie. Krystal thanx for letting us paint 
your car, and for bustin moves at the lunch table 'no diggity'. 
Rochele, for all the crazy times we've had. Michelle, Beth 
and Trinity for coming out with us. Katie, the gnomes and 
all the stuff from our childhood, you locking me out on the 
roof, I'm over it now. Goody, your a great guy, thanx for 
letting me beat you up. Maria I just met a girl named Maria. 
Thanx to the '97 guys, you all know who you are, Anurag, 
Doug, Brad, Eric, Sundet, Aaron, Omar, Mook, Todd, Oates, 
Jeff, Gearbox, Paul, Jay, Mike P. and Joey S.. Thanx for bustin 
crazy rhymes and smoking the D.J., Anurag's partys, chillin 
at Doug's, the verns, and the landing to name a few. High 
school would be nothing without you guys. Pietchel and 
Nerney, thanx for nights of cruising, partying, the senior 
prom, listening to bad music and doing stuff for no appar- 
ent reason. Jaci, thanx for children of the corn, our line 
dance, trips to Winapasakee, Mary falling in the drink, and 
our love hate relationship (mostly love). Molly, thanx for 
the aespestos monster, Dr. P runs, easy guide to physics 
(such as gravity pulls stuff down), underground kickboxing 
ring, and our silly little expeditions during unassigned. 
Katelyn, thanx for staging fist fights in public places. We 
will avenge the lighter from Liz. Christen F., for 'Luke I'm 
your dad.' Thanx to the class of 95 for giving us our first 
taste of high school parties. Thanx to the class of 96 for 
letting us hang with them. Thanx to the class of 98 for 
coming out with us. Of course Thanx to the entire class of 97.

Thanks: The worst thing about writing this is that I don't 
necessarilv have enough space to write everything out, 
because it would take me forever (no joke) to do it. To start 
things off, I would like to thank ALL OF YOU WHO HAP- 
PEN TO BE READING THIS!! Thanks. Now, lets get to 
business. I would like to start off by thanking the school, and 
the quality education it has given me (yes, even calculus). 
While on education, I would like to thank a few teachers, 
although I would thank you all if you had the time. The first 
teachers I would like to thank are Mr. Bennett, Mr Dougherty, 
and Mr. Hirsch, for being first teachers to fully inspire me 
towards the way of greatness in the realms of society, sci- 
ence, and the arts. The second teacher I would like to thank 
is Mr. Wakefield, for the fun, inspiring way he taught, and 
how he could easilv be Santa Clause. Teacher #3 = Mr. 
Sabourin, for singularly being one of the greatest teachers I 
have ever had, and will ever have. He taught me one of the 
greatest keys to success, enthusiasm. Did I mention that he 
is a great math teacher? I w ould like to thank Ken Scheyder, 
Mike Poulin, and Alan Coady of my scout troop. They gave 
me positive encouragement on this Eagle Project (which 
never ends), points of wisdom, and forgiveness for almost 
burning many a camp down. Finally I would like to thank 
Mr. Low, not just as a teacher, but as someone who has had 
to put up with me through the years. OK! Now lets get to the 
fun part! I would like to start off by thanking Devin for 
having the potential of a great leader, while able to have fun. 
This also applies to Jean, who always has something useful 
to say, especially to Mr. Spinosa (Ha, Ha). Casey is next, 
always having someting interesting to say (Ok George), 
while having so much fun in physics. Ricky, you the man! 
Sorry about the Boston Globe incident. Miranda for 
Telemedia stuff, and Kamah for doing a wheelie good job at 
being fun, and for running over Chris. Justin, for all those 
wierd Spainsh videos, the funky dance moves, and for that 
great sense of humor. Hunter, Hunter (sigh). You never 
cease to amaze me with you ambitions, computer know- 
how-, and all those videos with Justin. If you can beat out Bill 
Gates, go ahead, but make sure that 1 can get a well paying 
job out of it. Derek, for being so observant of all the chaos, 
and trving to make some sense out of it. David L, for being 
one of the most unselfish people I know, while puting up 
with me. Carey for being the happiest cheerleader, but for 
also showing that cheerleaders have a deeper side to them. 

Emilv, for being so there! You and Ingrid have continu- 

allv amazed me with your acting and singing, all the way 
from day Kor is it 2?). I thank all the Inter Act girls for their 
support in all my ventures, among other things. I also thank 
Madrigal, for all their continued support in countless situa- 
tions. Mer and Meg for being so fun, while Adam, Andy, 



Thanks

Dave R., Honkus, Jesse, and Ryan for the parties, Magic, and 
having fun. Robin for such random things such as exotic 
pigeons. I thank food for being there when I am hungrv 
(which is all the time), and music ("Weird Al" Yankovicand 
Def Leppard rock) to entertain me. I thank Matt K., Jeff St., 
Emalie P., and Dave P. for my own T. V. show (If it ever gets 
aired). Now we come to the more serious thanks so hang on! 
I begin by thanking Bobby M. for being such a great child- 
hood friend, and putting up with me all these years. Chris B , 
for scouts (the posion ivy incident comes to mind), for ESP, 
for all that extra help in school, for just being a great friend. 
Finallv, I would like to thank Shaun Fillion, who has been 
one of the best friends I have ever had. You have put up with 
me more than anyone else excluding my parents, and I am 
proud of your achievements. 1 am proud to be a Shawn (or 
Shaun, or Sean, etc.) Now, you may be thinking that I forgot 
my family. WRONG!! I have been saving the best for last. So 
without any adieu, I would like to thank my not so little 
sister, Nikki. If there were a description of the average 
annoying little sister, you would fit the bill (OK, I'm only 
kidding). I hope to see the day when you win for Olympic 
Women's Basketball Team. J. P., you have always been stron- 
ger than me, (although you have never beaten me up!) and 
you always seem to have a million girlfriends, and I hope 
that you will rise to be great someday. Debbie, for teaching 
me to smile. You sparked the very odd sense of humor I 
have, and in that I woe you one. Finally, I would like to thank 
my parents for a job well done. Mom, Dad, you have done 
a saint's job in making me what I am today. You have given 
me that second chance, and in that, I owe you A LOT! No Me 
Digas! 

Future Goals: I want live a full life filled with 
happiness. (Money, a faimily, Food, Being Important, Sing- 
ing, Acting, and Having Fun can't hurt either.) I will un- 
cover the Roswell conspiracy, star in some movies, go into 
orbit, be a Reinassance Man, and maybe even run for 
President. The future is waiting

Thank You: First of all, I-d like to thank you Mom. We've 
certainly had our differences, but I guess all those times you 
got on my case to do my homework finally paid off. Dad, 1 
want you to know that I will always love you, even if it gets 
difficult at times. You have truly been a good influence in my 
life. Catherine, well here you are. You asked to be men- 
tioned... Seriously, I couldn't have asked for a better little 
sister. Without you, how would do the art for all my projects? 
Just don't play the country music so loud, OK? Bill, thanks 
for being understanding about the whole situation. It made 
things a lot easier. Grandad Hill, I owe so much to you that 
I can't fit it in this book. You have been such an inspiration 
to me I really don't know how to thank you. Be assured that 
that you are one of the most important people I have ever 
met. Grandad Casey, you meant so much to me too, and I'm 
deeply saddened that you will never see me graduate. The 
time we spent together was far too short. Mr. Gurley, you 
reintroduced me to the church and inspired my faith when 
it was lacking, and for that I thank you. May you find peace 
wherever you are. Anne Snyder and Bishop Tom, you con- 
tinued the work that Mr. Gurley started with me. Thank you 
for making church an important facet of my childhood. To 
any teacher that I have ever had, thank you for giving me the 
knowledge to succeed in the world. Especially Mrs. Franklin, 
Mr. Smithson, Mrs. Martines, Mr. Maxwell, Mr. Reynolds, 
Mrs. Messmer, Mrs. Kruger, and Mr. Low. All of you have 
enriched my life and made me who I am today. Growing up 
several people served almost as a second set of parents to 
me. Mr. and Mrs. Larson, Blanchette, and Connelly, thank 
you for putting up with me for all that time, I know it was 
rough. To Peter Meyers, thanks for all your efforts. I really 
was a member all that time. Coach Wilson and Coach 
Barton, thanks for the four best seasons ever. You don't 
know how much they meant to me. To Ron Blanchette, my 
best friend from down the street, I think I spent more time 
at your place every summer than at home. You are a great 
friend and I have missed you since you left for Norwich. 
Carl Larson, you have never failed to introduce me to 
something new. Whether kayaking mountain biking, or the 
architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright conversations with you 
are never dull, thanks. Devin, its corny, but I can't thank you 
for everything in the space provided, but I'll try. For intro- 
ducing me to the city, all the ethnic jokes (token minority 
friend...), video projects, and generally being an incredible 
friend, thanks. To Rick for drive-by silly stringings, being 
humble in Calculus (not really...), and making sure I never 
got too serious. Justin, you ought to be a comedian. Thanks 
for appreciating the Simpsons, composing on the HP, and 
knowing all the useless trivia. You're an amazing person, 



163 



and I have a lot of respect for you. To Alyssa, for being the 
only person to thank me last year. To Brian, Vilas, and 
Rachel for getting me involved in various organizations. To 
Chris, for somehow convincing teachers that we are the 
same person. Cordelia, thanks for the Semi and Prom. To 
Nicci and Beth, thanks for making Spanish tolerable. 
Miranda, for understanding most of my jokes. Jeff Ander- 
son, for always agreeing with me in Poly Sci. Jeff, you made 
that the best class I had this year, thanks. Finally, thanks you 
to Jean. I think we pretty much grew up together, and have 
been friends ever since. You are like a sister to me. Thanks 
for always being and unbelievably talented person and one 
of my closest friends. I know there must be at least another 
fifty people who I have forgotten to thank here, and for that 
I'm sorry, but feel free to yell at me for leaving you out. 
Thanks for everything you've done. 

Future Goals: To serve in the Navy for several years and then 
to find a job in either politics or research. To marry and have 
a family. To always have good friends around me and 
appreciate what I have. 

Miranda Hillyard

intellignt, helping me, listening to me, becoming a truly 
wonderful friend, your dog loving me, and pulling me (with 
Dave's help) into the MB. To Jim and Pat, for having pa- 
tience and teaching me so much. To Kristen Mac for being 
my bass drum partner and for dancing and obsessing with 
me. Mr. Reagan for being so inspiring and for my crush on

cal laugh. Justin for knowing everything. Ricky for growing 
up, the river rave; Shawn and Ricky: for BHS Live! Crispix 
for arguing ridiculous points. To Geri for being in every class 
with me, and for always being my partner, pero, siempre

Thanks Thank you to everyone who has been a part of my 
life — my family and, especially, my friends. I'm not going

you should know who you are. We flew through the good 
times, got through the bad times, and just lived the times in 
between, there is still more to come but since it's finally time 
for us to leave, I wish you all the best of luck. I know that 
each one of you is going to be a tremendous success in 
whatever you decide to do. I'll miss you guys and I love you.

First of all I would like to thank my family for always being 
there throughout the good and bad times. These teenage 
years have been fun and unfortunately they have to be 
traded in for an all new college life. There have been manv 
others who helped me last through the high school years. 
Some of the biggest influences have been the football coaches 
from freshman year and coach Sullivan up to senior year 
with coaches Sabourin, Petrillo, cambell, Elias, and Hirsch. 
Then there are my friends from football, including Eric, 
Steve, Gary, Chris and others. They have made high school 
a blast. There have been many other friends who have left 
for college during the past 3 years. Every one of them I will 
remember for all of their unique personalities.This Senior 
year was something I knew would eventually come and so 
far has been great, even though I know it means many of the 
friends I have known for a long time will not be seen again. 
All of the great friends I have had made school fun. Like all 
of the fun discussions I have had with Jeff in poly-sci class. 
Even the teachers have made learning fun. Especially Latin 
class with Mr. Kelly, added to all the great personalities that 
have been in the class with me over the years. I know I will 
have many other great friends and experiences but I will 
cherish these last couple of years. I am sorry if I have 
forgotten anyone, but there are way too many great friends 
to fit on one disc and I hope thev all have great futures.

Thank vou to my whole family, from you I have and always 
will learn the most. Mom and Dad your were always there 
supporting me and helping me along the way. Pat, you still 
can't beat me in wrestling. Tim, I'm glad at least one of you 
two was smart enough to play soccer. At times it may not 
seem like it, but I'm glad to have you two around. Kristen, 
Gabe, Geri, el grupo. Mis mejores amigos. May the grupo 
remain juntos forever. Gabe, I don't care what they sav I like 
the hair. Geri, I can't believe he got you to go hunting. 
Kristen, vou are definitely obsessed with Dave Matthews, 
keep on singing. To the teams, you guys are the best. Soccer, 
skiing, lacrosse, I can't think of anybody else I'd rather plav 
with. Coaches, thanks for you time, patience, and guidance, 
I learned from you all. Teachers, you have turned me into 
the unbelievably intelligent human being I am toda v. Thank 
you especially to Mr. Corliss, without whom typing this 
would have taken all night. To all the teachers who wrote 
me recommendations, Mr. Spinosa, Mr. Sullivan, Mr. 
Sabourin, Ms. Keltner, Ms. Messma(er), I hope these help to 
get me in somewhere. Sab, I finally have enthusiasm. O.K. 
Kim, I admit it you beat me. Elisa, I just can' t figure out why 
they think you're so quiet. Kristina it was me that put the 
lock on your locker, but it was Gabe's lock. Peer Leaders, it's 
scary that they consider us role models, little do they know, 
ha, ha. Chesthair, lunch wouldn't have been the same 
without vou (all four years). Wolfie, Styles, may Messma 
remember the jackets forever. Jeff, Amita, and "Smelly Cat" 
anatomy was an experience. Reynolds, Casey, Jeff, Tom, the 
class might have been small, but we made up for it by just 
veiling louder. A special thanks to Adam Sandler (aka Billy 
Madison, Happy Gilmore), without him this world would 
be a more depressing place. By the way Jeff, I will never be 
able to bring myself to voting for you. BHS Live!, I was only 
there for one year, but I had a hell of a time with you all. Insty 
and Gabe, I couldn't have gotten through humanities with- 
out vou guys. Gearbox and Joe I don't mind being second 
best to kings like you. Nicci, Beth, Elisa thanks for the 
manicure, I'll never do it again! Chabs, Doug, Eric, we just 
couldn't stay out of trouble with Mrs. Luke. To everyone I 
have not mentioned thank you very much for 1 3 great years 
of school. It wouldn't have been the same without any one 
of you. Thanks to the class of '96, the class of '98, all my other 
friends older and younger, and especially the best class, the 
class of 1997. 

FUTURE GOALS: To get a college education, find a good 
job, get married and have a family. My overall goal is to live 
life to the fullest and enjoy it.

First, I would like to thank mv parents for alwavs being 
there for me and for continually making sacrifices. It's been 
difficult for you guys, especially not seeing me enough for 
the past two years, and I want to say I appreciate all that 
you've done for me. Next I would like to thank Mrs. Parker, 
first for providing me with the opportunity to come to 
Bedford, and second, for doing everything humanly pos- 
sible to ensure that I had everything that I needed with 
regards to school, and above and beyond that, making sure 
I was happy in Bedford. Thank you for everything, Mrs. 
Parker. I would like to thank the Stucka family, the Hill 
family, the Betz family, and the Hastings family. Without 
your generosity, I would never have been able to be so 
involved in extracurricular activities. Thank you very much 
for such warm hospitality, for always making me feel wel- 
come, and for making me feel like part of the family. I would 
like to thank all of the teachers that I've had through the 
years, especially the faculty of BHS. I've learned so much in 
the past four years, and a good deal of it is due to the 
opportunities made available to me by teachers in the high 
school. I'd especially like to thank Ms. Rainis, Mr. Reynolds, 
Mr. Spinosa, Mr. Maxwell, Mr. Maffa, Mrs. Luke, Mr. 
Ullmann, Mrs. Messmer, and Mrs. Krueger. I always en- 

Thanks 



joyed coming to your classes, and you all helped me to make 
the most of my high school experience. Thank you again. I'd 
like to thank all of the METCO students for a very interesting 
nine years. I'd like to thank Jason, Norman, Cedric, John 
and Akil for track, Burger King, and all of the crazy T rides 
home. Norman, keep up the good work, and Jason BE- 
HAVE YOURSELF! I'd like to thank all of the members of 
the BHS orchestra, especially the incomparable second vio- 
lin section. To the Drama Club, thanks for the Tournament, 
and New York. Thanks to the Marching Band for the most 
fun I've had this year. Go Drumline! Thanks Pat and Jim for 
teaching me to play the drums, and for making Band so 
funny. Thanks to Mr. Rinaldi for selecting me for the 
awesome task of putting together this yearbook. I'd like to 
thank the staff for working so hard, especially Joe Savitch, 
Rachel Johnson, and Laura Gavornik. Without you guys, 
the book would have been in SERIOUS trouble. Good luck 
next year Laura and Rachel. To all my sophomore friends 
(Liz V., Jackie S., Michelle and Tawnya, Kelly C, Laura S, Jill 
S) thanks for being so nice. There are just too many juniors 
to thank individually. To Ginny and Reagan, thanks for 
accepting me without judging me. You guys are reallv cool, 
and I'm glad I got to know you. Thanks Boo for just being 
you, stripping with me on the Track Bus, and always being 
there to make a spectacle. Belknap, sorry for all the abuse, 
but it was all in good fun. Keep the orchestra in line. Thanks 
Robin, Caroline, Emily G. for that crazy gym class. If I 
missed anyone, I'm sorry. Iloveyouall. I'd like to thank the 
Track team collectively, for being so much fun. Thanks 
especially to Courtney for spiking my hand, and leaving 
scars. On to the class of '97. Thanks to Kim MacG for being 
such a good friend for so long. Thanks Kristen Sylva for 
always being there for me, whether it was just to listen, or to 
offer advice. Thanks Carey H for being so cool. Nina, what 
can I say? You've been a good friend since you moved here, 
thanks for everything. Alison, Jen, AML, Josh, Dave, Joe, 
Kerry - thanks for all of the interesting talks. Nicci, thanks 
for always listening. Emily, you've been a great friend since 
eighth grade, thanks. Nadya and Chris O. thanks for being 
such cool people. Hunter, thanks for always flipping out, 
you made school fun. Kamah, thanks for being so nice. Jean, 
I don't know what to say. You mean so much to me, and I 
feel silly for not being able to express myself. I love you 
dearly, and thanks for being such a great friend. Thanks 
Cordelia for being a really good friend. To Rick, Casey, 
Justin, Chris - you guys are the best. You've been my best 
friends for a long time, and I want to say thanks for always 
being there for me, for all the laughs and good times. It's 
been great. Thanks Shawn, Dave, and the rest of the lunch- 
time group. To Yuko, I want to say, I'm very glad I met you. 
You quickly became one of my best friends. Thanks for 
being so cool, and such a great listener, and going with me 
to the Junior Prom. I love you, and I'll miss you when you 
go back to Japan. To the rest of the Acton crowd, thanks for 
the fun times hanging out. Again, too many seniors to thank 
everyone for everything. If I missed any of you, I'm terribly 
sorry. I love you all, thanks for all of the memories. Finally, 
I'd like to say thank you to Pam Worth. Pam, I'm never 
happier than when I'm with you. I want to say thanks for 
everything: always listening, giving sound advice, all the 
trips to Boston, helping me ensure the success of the Taco 
Bell and McDonalds restaurant chains, and just being there 
for me. Again, I'm at a loss for words trying to define what 
you mean to me. Suffice it to say that I love you, I'm 
eternally grateful for the time we've already shared to- 
gether, and I hope that we'll be together for a long time to 
come. I guess that's everyone. Thanks again to the afore- 
mentioned, and any I forgot to mention. It's been great, and 
I love and will miss you all.

Surprise! 



Different people react differently to the sudden appearance of a camera. 
Here's a sort of character study... 





Elissa Dill tries to run away. . , _ . . ., .. , 

J Mr. Sabounn smiles cautiously. 



Morgan McDonough: either terrified or 
tremendously happy. 




Mr. Duggan is startled. 





Alvin Tsang doesn't seem to no- Casey Hill, like Elissa, also attempts an escape, 
tice the presence of a photogra- 
pher.

Ingrid's first passport picture 



To Ingrid. 

You've traveled 'round the world and seen much: 

Beautiful sandy beaches, cold, forbidding glaciers, 
volcanoes, rain forests and huge modern cities. 

You've made friends with people and animals from many countries: 

M arshallese, Koreans, Swedes, (even an orangutan in 

Singapore and a boa constrictor (too close) in Thailand.) 

You've ridden on every conveyance possible: 

Trains, buses, bikes, tuk tuks, and planes, an elephant and 
boats around the world. (You even drove a car in Denmark!) 

You've convinced people you were many characters in many plays: 
A messenger angel (your first role in church plays), a fiery old 
maid (in Ten Little Indians), and a sweet young maiden (many 
times). 

You've brought joy, pride and happiness to our home with your: 
Laughter, creativity, friends and beautiful singing. 

You've done much and will do much more. 

Congratulations on your graduation and may God bless your 
future endeavors. 

With much love: Mom, Dad, Stefan and Nathan 




Geri, that all these years have passed, 
it's not easy to believe, 
We were given the gift of parenting 
you. now in a short time you will 
leave: 

To carry with you all your knowl- 
edge... all you've worked for and 
you've earned, 

To study Espanol and Foreign Busi- 
ness; its an opportunity you've 
learned from your very first step, 
you didn't walk, you started out 
running, 

In soccer, on the diamonds and in 
dancing you were stunning. 
But Basketball's your passion, you 
work hard and you play smart, 
You're strong and you're determined, and you play the game with 
heart. 

You and Carli share more memories than many siblings do. 

A love of Disney and the Celts, are just a few. 

More important than those reasons, there surely is another, 

There's love and caring and the knowledge that you'll always have 

each other. 

An Accomplished Writer, and a Scholar and Introspective Teen, 

An Athlete, and Team Captain and our own Homecoming Queen, 

A Daughter and a Sister, a Good Listener and a Friend, 

Our pride for your accomplishments has a list that doesn't end. 

So as you don your cap and gown and pack your trunk for college, 

There's something more to take along besides your books and 

knowledge. 

Among your treasured take- alongs you pack after graduation 
Take with you our respect and love and deepest admiration. 
Love Dad. Mom & Carli 




Ami, 

We are very proud of you and all the hard work you 
have done. You have brought us so much happiness. May 
you live a long and healthy life. We wish you all the 
happiness in the world. We'll miss you very much and 
we love you! 

Remember, your health is the most important thing. Take 
care of yourself. 
Love, 

Mom, Papa, Peepa, Shivani, & Mukesh
